Barbecue is not something we joke about, especially in the south. The thing about barbecue is it is not something you rush. Barbecuing is a must do, especially since the weather is starting to cool down. It’s a process that takes time but the end result is a mouth-watering meal that will satisfy anybody. Barbecue fans are all on the same page about how important barbecue is to the American food industry. However, when it comes down to each individual state, there is no agreement on who’s is better. Everyone thinks their barbecue is the best.
What makes barbecue even better? The sides! Mac n Cheese, cornbread, coleslaw and more! Load the grill up with meat and bring out all of the sides for everyone to enjoy. Maybe even make a little sweet tea! This way of cooking has been around for forever. Our ancestors use to cook on an open flame which we have now adapted into barbecuing. Even George Washington wrote about barbecuing in his own diaries. Travel+Leisure has given us 25 of the Best Places for Barbecue in the U.S. They also used the help of Yelp’s algorithm to help find the “best” barbecue restaurants around the U.S. They look at the reviews and star ratings. No need to worry about large chain restaurants popping up in this list because they are all excluded.
